Many members of the BF4 community have been dealing with their screens blurring for no reason. Below I am going to list a couple of ways to help fix this issue. If this doesn't work for you I am sorry. I will post more updates as I find them. So if nothing works for you follow this thread.   1.Go into your settings. Turn your Motion Blur Amount to 100%. And turn your Weapon DOF to ON.   If this does not work for you. (Some it does some it won't) Please try the next step.   This is more of a Temp bypass for disabling Motion Blur to stop the effect.   1. Open Notepad   2. Paste the following: WorldRender.MotionBlurEnable 0 WorldRender.MotionBlurFixedShutterTime 0 WorldRender.MotionBlurForceOn 0 WorldRender.MotionBlurMax 0 WorldRender.MotionBlurMaxSampleCount 0 WorldRender.MotionBlurQuality 0   3. File > Save As > Choose > Save as type: All files Choose > File name: user.cfg Navigate to the "Origin Games\Battlefield 4" folder and click save.
  2. Hullo all,     So if you played the Hardline Beta, you now have access to the "4th Floor Dog Tag" in the Right section of your Dog Tag selection under the tab of Exclusive.  There is a QR code and I can't seem to get any Android Reader to read it.  If anyone gets it to work or finds out what it's for, please post and let us all know.   Happy Hunting!
  3. Before you start saying that you didnt forget. Im just trying to say is that, since the whole Battlefield Hardline beta was announced two weeks ago. In my opinion, people just seemed like they forgot about that, DICE still has two. Yet to be released dlc. And It seems like nobidy is hyped. So this is just my opinions, dont hate if you disagree. But it would be nice if you post your opinions down below. Thanks!!
  4. Hullo All,     Just wanted to update you guyz with some info on the upcoming Veterans Program in Battlefield 4.  Not sure of the release date, but in order to start earning rewards with it, you have to have at least 10hrs on BF3.  Then depending on how many games you have played, you get additional rewards.  There's different tiers for rewards: General and then 1 for each of the classes.  Not sure what you'll get with that, but I will update as more info is found.   Happy Hunting.
  5. CTE has updated to Initiative #2 today.  Check out the details here.  Happy Hunting.

  7. Here's the latest update of battlelog.   An update for the Battlelog mobile app will be rolled out later today, containing several new features, improvements and fixes. A separate changelog will be posted for that after the update.    ANNOUNCEMENTS:  - You now only need 2 members of the Platoon playing in the same round to get stats and earn XP for your Platoon.

    i need help my comp keeps BSOD when i play bf4 for more thatn 20 min it all just started tonight and its happened about 4 times, i just built my comp about 2 months ago video and mobo driver updated. i7-4770k , msi z87-gd65, asus gtx760, 1tb seagate barracude, corsair 750w hx, the error reads that there was a hardware fail and is dumping data , please help if you have had this happen to you or have experience with this stuff, its so frustrating 
  9. Just curious, have any of you tried out the m16a4 and m4 after this last patch? I've had a decent number of kills with the m16 but none with the m4 until yesterday. I am consistently shooting between 25 and 35% accuracy with these 2 weapons and been having a blast. What do you guys think?   Current setups: M16A4: Kobra/ Suppressor/ Angled Grip - use this to sit back and play defensive M4: Kobra/ Laser/ Flash Hider/ Ergo Grip - use this to run and gun up close   Few battle reports for the lols   http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/battlereport/show/1/451602514554713408/887169337/ http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/battlereport/show/1/451143723031335680/887169337/ http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/battlereport/show/1/451147014813389568/887169337/ http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/battlereport/show/1/451151355788006144/887169337/
  10. BF4 Optimization

    Before I start: I wrote this article to bring light to a few things, if I do not go indepth enough in an area or I make a mistake please let me know.   I don't post often, but I have been helping out numerous people with weapon loadouts, and optimizing there PC for a stable experience in Battlefield 4. Now as for optimizing your PC, I've noticed that few people make these small changes that make a huge different in gameplay. Now for a few fixes:   1.) MarkC Windows Mouse Acceleration Fix   What is mouse acceleration? Basically, if you move your mouse 1 inch slowly it moves a set amount on your screen. If you move it 1 inch faster it moves a farther distance than if you moved your mouse slowly.   What does this mean in Battlefield or gaming in general? You can't have reliable muscle memory. So mouse acceleration + gaming = BAD!   What does this fix do? It makes a registry edit to Windows that removes the mouse acceleration   How to Apply the Mouse Acceleration Fix YouTube Video Tutorial for making a config file (if you want a visual representation) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjCChK5-e8U Change Windows Sensitivity to 6/11 (middle) and uncheck "enhance pointer precision" Download the file: http://donewmouseaccel.blogspot.com/2010/03/markc-windows-7-mouse-acceleration-fix.html (it does come with a "Read Me" Find Display Resolution Percent (Control Panel> Appearance and Personalization> Display) 100% / 125% or 150% Apply the fix for your version of windows (7/8/8.1) with your Display Resolution Percent Reboot   2.) Unparking Your CPU Cores   What is a "parked" cpu core? In simple terms, a parked cpu core is basically a "sleeping" cpu core.   What does this mean in Battlefield or gaming in general? Unparking your cpu cores allows your cpu to run more efficiently. It may increase your temperatures by a few degrees (very minimal), but can increase fps in cpu intensive games like Battlefield.   What does this fix do? It makes a registry edit to Windows that unparks cpu cores. Now for some reason you want to re-park cores it's possible, but there should be a reason to do so.   How to Unpark Your Cpu Cores YouTube Video Tutorial for making a config file (if you want a visual representation) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkfIFP0g2xY Download the file: http://www.coderbag.com/Programming-C/Disable-CPU-Core-Parking-Utility "Download application excusable files..." towards the bottom of the page. Extract All Run the program Check Status Unpark All   3.) Battlefield Settings   I have a respectable PC build, but I play on the absolute lowest settings at 1080p. From my experience, at the lower settings some sorts of cover at distance do not render in allowing me to "see through walls" and spot my targets with ease. With the higher settings, I am having my view obstructed by lighting effects and fancy textures. Some people think ultra settings with anti-aliasing max will be better. No. You don't need to play with everything max, but you might like to have a few things turned up.   A few things you should consider... What is the refresh rate of your monitor (60hz/ 120hz/ 144hz ect..) Do you maintain a stable fps? Can you maintain a stable fps that matches your refresh rate? Stable frames and smooth gameplay are worth turning down some settings.   What if I want to keep a few graphics settings turned up? If you want to keep some settings medium-ultra that is fine but a few I'd recommend to turn off: Anti Aliasing Differed Anti Aliasing Post Ambient Occlusion Motion Blur (motion blur at 0%) Also turn off V-sync (can cause mouse input lag)   4.) Network Smoothing Factor One more setting to keep in mind is your network smoothing factor. Due to BF4 "bad netcode" we need all the help we can get. Just turn the slider all the way down. One key thing this helps with is bullet registration and slightly with "being shot around a corners".   5.) Config File Like I said, I just want to bring light to this magnificent file. For the creation of this file I would like to give credit to Dynasty. In reality, if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be half the infantry player I am today :D   Config FIle: (copy this)   PerfOverlay.DrawFps 0 GameTime.MaxVariableFps 144 Render.DrawScreenInfo 0 WorldRender.TransparencyShadowmapsEnable 1 WorldRender.MotionblurEnable 0 WorldRender.SpotLightShadowmapEnable 1 WorldRender.LightTileCsPathEnable 1 RenderDevice.Dx11Enable 0 RenderDevice.Dx11Dot1Enable 1 RenderDevice.Dx11Dot1RuntimeEnable 1 RenderDevice.VSyncEnable 0 RenderDevice.TripleBufferingEnable 0 RenderDevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 0   With this, a few things you might need to change is the GameTime.MaxVariableFPS, simply change the 144 to the refresh rate that you play at (60hz/ 120hz ect). If you want to be able to see your fps in game change "PerfOverlay.Drawfps 0" to "PerfOverlay.Drawfps 1"   How to Make a Config File YouTube Video Tutorial for making a config file (if you want a visual representation) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU1q2wEcDiA   Find where you downloaded the battlefield game files (ex. C> ProgramFilesx86> Origin Games> Battlefield 4) Find a open space (right click> new> text document) Open it Paste the text above Save it (File> save as> NAME: user.cfg FILETYPE: all files) You can check if this works, load out BF4 and use the fps command and see if your fps is capped.     Finally, after doing this you should have a more stable, and fun experience on the battlefield! Now if you would like me to make an article about my preferred weapon loadouts and why I use what I use just tell me and if enough people want I can do so.
  11. I love using the ACW-R! It has a nice rate of fire with out much recoil :D But it chews through ammo like crazy!   My favorite attachments!   OPTIC Coyote Sight or Reflex   ACCESSORY Laser sight (at the moment)   BARREL Suppressor or Compensator   UNDERBARREL (any grip will do)                  
  12. Hello, I just joined ADK!

    Thunderousmight has been a friend of mine on the battlefield for over 2 years and keeps telling me to join ADK,  so here i am.   I am Brian Benson from northern MN,   I have been playing on bf4 on adk's no explosives operation metro server.   I like to play as a team and promote good revives, med packs and ammo.   Top 5% in all those categories!
  13. I don't understand why people love this gun so much? I know its a good gun and it has high damage and range but I prefer the 388-RECON. I love the sound of the 388-RECON :) and its bullet velocity! 
  14. A Battlefield 4 Night Map?

    I wish DICE added a night map to BF4! The only map we have closest to a night map sort of is Operation Locker because of the lights going out haha. I would like to see a night map brought into BF4. Can you imagine Siege of Shanghai if it was night time? Like in the campaign? It would be spooky! or maybe they can add Tehran Highway or Death Valley back? but a little less blue.
  15. I didn't know you could do this! I found out by pressing my MOUSE 4 button. I wish I knew about this earlier! haha
  16. Emblem

  17. Battlefield 4 Netcode

    I've been getting extremely pissed off with Battlefield 4's net-code. It makes me lose almost half of the gunfights i get into. I'm really debating on trying to get a petition signed by a TONE of people to make DICE fix the net-coding for the game. If anyone agrees or has any comments leave them because i would like to hear other peoples opinion on this as well. Also, how can I fix it to make it better for me in game with what we have right now?  
  18. China Rising

    Hey guys, can anyone help me how to can I play my china rising game..... I've already installed all 3 cds but everytime I press play it says requires expansion pack and I click retry and open in origin and does not do anything... Please help  :wacko:
  19. I recently upgraded to Win 8.1 and decided to give hyperthreading another try.  On my system, it seems to work very well although I don't have any reliable way to benchmark my results.     What I can say is that under Win7, with my frames locked at 117FPS, I would routinely get dips into the 90s, especially in firefights or whenever I look at the objective cluster outside the uncap.  The stuttering was also horrendous, which was the main reason why many folks disabled it.  Under Win 8.1 with HT enabled, my frames are a solid 117FPS, even on a large map like Caspian with 64 players.  Zero stutter.  Give it a try and advise your results!  You just might be surprised.   war
  20. screen flashy thingy

  22. Many posts here at ADK and across the net about Battlefield 4 Beta and issues related to performance. I have put together all the known fixes that I know of into one post for those with issues to try. With the majority of PC’s that are similar and have completely different issues, if any these fixes may not work for you in particular please feel free to continue to post here and a few of the ADK members have been posting quickly to answer or at least direct you to a possible solution. First and foremost Battlefield 3 is not only very graphic intense on your systems GPU, but CPU as well. BF 4 is proving to also continue on that path with the beta to truly test your system to the limits. Both Nvidia and AMD have released beta drivers for BF 4 Beta to hopefully help with some issues. This is one of the first things to check. Links for drivers: Nvidia AMD Be sure to uninstall any drivers first, restart your machine. Install the Beta drivers and restart again. Before starting the game you need to insure Punk Buster is up to date. Download the updater (Obviously the Windows version). Be sure to unzip the file before trying to run the PB.exe. Add Game tab select BF 4. Click the Check for Updates tab. Allow it a few minutes to update. *NOTE: this also has been proven to significantly speed up loading times to enter a game* Now try getting into a game. I suggest a Domination first as it is a smaller map with no vehicles and 32 slots. Before deploying you need to set your video options (esc key, Video) too low for starters. Deploy and see how it plays. In order to check your FPS (Frames per minute) you can type "perfoverlay.drawfps 1" in the console (by hitting the ~ key) or you would need a need a third party app like Fraps. If your monitor is 60HZ anything above 50FPS should be acceptable, if your running 120HZ anything above 90 is acceptable (not great but acceptable). *Remember: After setting your Video settings you should quit the game and re-connect to a server to ensure your video settings are fully loaded* If your still having issues you can find out what is causing the bottleneck by running the Task Manager and click Performance tab to see your CPU usage along with an app like MSI’s Afterburner or Evga’s Precision X to monitor your GPU usage. If you have a single monitor, run the game for a few minutes and alt-tab out to check. 90% or higher CPU usage is way too much for your CPU and will cause issues such as lag and low FPS. Your GPU can run 90% but consistently above 90% and low FPS and/or lag with a lower CPU (60%) and your GPU is causing a bottle neck. You can try to OC either or both. On a side note: The CPU's that have hyper threading in BF3 that are stuck at 50% might really be at 100% due to the hyper threading not being utilized. I stated below also, but if your CPU will not go past or stays at 50% try what I suggest below. *NOTE: Overclocking a CPU or GPU will not give you MHz to MHz performance. Example if you have a 3.0MHz quad core CPU OC’ed to 4.0MHz it will not run as fast as a stock 4.0MHz quad core CPU from the same family* Battlefield 3 and 4 are highly CPU intensive and the more “real” cores you have the better it will run. If all else seems to fail there are a couple more things to try to increase the performance to at least playable. 1) Roll back your GPU drivers to the lasted release versions. This seems to work better for older GPU’s 2) For those who have hyper-threading and turbo on their CPU’s disable what you can of both in your BIOS. This have been proven to work in BF 3. BF 4 has been noted to use those features, but I suggest trying it anyways. Hyper-threading is a way that a CPU tells the OS it has more cores than it really does. The OS will continually give the CPU data to compute even if the CPU is actually running at 100% as the OS doesn't know that. If software isn't optimized for the Hyper threading instructions it doesn't know why the data isn't getting through the CPU causing huge issues (Very Barney style, but hopefully you get the point)   *Note: Disable turbo mode, hyper threading and cores, or a combination or individually, has been proven to increase your game performance. This is a step that needs to be tried and experimented with. *  3) Running Windows 7? BF 4 has been proven to run better with greater performance in Windows 8 which makes no sense as the Alpha had no W8 support, but it has been tested and proven to run better in Windows 8. This has been confirmed by Dice that the Alpha came out for W7 only because of issues. W8 is the most "efficient" way to get into the Beta. I’ll add more as things keep coming up!
  23. How to play the beta?

    How do you get into the battlefield 4 beta?
  24. All,   For the gearheads/enthusiasts among us, there is some very interesting discussion and experimenting by Chip Curry at Chip Reviews on CPU scaling with the Frostbite 2 engine in multiplayer.  Since I just made the jump to hexacore, I thought I would weigh in as well with what I've seen for myself (I will elaborate this post as I learn more).  Keep in mind that this post is more oriented toward those considering a serious hardware upgrade and want to game at 120Hz and avoid a CPU bottleneck.   We get post on here all the time about folks seeking to upgrade their rigs and most of them do their gaming in multiplayer.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of benchmarks we use use to make those critical hardware decisions are based on single player time demonstration game modes that don't correlate very well to how a certain piece of hardware will perform during multiplayer game on a populated server.  Nowhere have I seen the disparity between single player (campaign) mode and multiplayer more sharply than in Battlefield 3.  I have seen tons of posts on the EA, Battlefield 3, and Nvidia forums of frustrated people who've sprung for the latest hotness or doubled their GPU power with SLI only get no benefit from it whatsoever on BF3's large multiplayer maps.  It really sucks to see your FPS remain relatively unchanged while your card's GPU utilization hovers around 50%.   Speaking only for Battlefield 3, what I can see with Intel processors is that Frostbite 2 loves physical cores.  The more you can throw at them, the better.  One thing I missed at the very beginning of the article , is that Chip mentions that he's running Win8.  At the time, I didn't think that was a big deal until I noticed that under Win7, I saw no benefit to running the 3930K over the 3820 at the same clock speed - none.  What I did see under Win7 is a lower average processor load across all CPU cores with no increase in FPS.  Why this is so is a mystery to me, although I do have some guesses.  After much fiddling and trying to coax Win7 into providing some kind of performance boost from adding the physical cores, I gave up and did a clean install of Win8 to see if I could duplicate Chip's results.   Under Win8, I'm finally seeing the benefits of adding the 3930K's two additional cores.  My frame rates are up significantly (more data to follow) and my average GPU (GTX-780) utilization has increased from 75% to 95%.  I held off upgrading to Win8 for as long as I could, but in order to get the benefit of running a hexacore CPU with Frostbite 2, I had no other choice.   So, looking to upgrade your rig for BF4 (and Frostbite 3) multiplayer?  I would consider...   - Running a hexacore or better CPU.  If you want to game at 120Hz on BF3's large multiplayer maps, a hexacore CPU is a must.  I don't have any data on how well the AMD 8-core CPUs perform in BF3 multiplayer, but I would be very interested to know!  If the performance warrants it, an 8-core AMD processor may be the most economical. - Running Windows 8.  YYMV, but personally I could get no benefit whatsoever from adding physical CPU cores while running Windows 7.  The difference in CPU scaling between the two Windows versions is that huge.   Just some preliminary observations from me as the clock tics down on BF4 and lots of folks are considering hardware upgrades.   war
